Aeriae plays Melbourne Fringe, Friday 15 September 2017

I'm playing at Clan Analogue's Digital Envelope event on Friday 15 September 2017 at Bar 303 in Northcote, Melbourne. I'm putting together a new high pace set. And if the venue allows, I'll be playing in darkness.

Tickets are $12 online now. You should also be able to buy at the door on the night.

Clan Analogue celebrates 25 years of independent Australian electronic music-making with a two-night festival at Bar 303. Friday night’s ‘Digital Envelope’ explores the multi-faceted digital realm of electronic music while Saturday night’s ’Analogue Coordinates’ sees some of Melbourne’s idiosyncratic analogue technology performers in a spontaneous one-off collaboration.

Digital Envelope explores the digital realm of electronic music with multiple artists presenting their unique sonic manipulations of ones and zeroes. With live performances by Aeriae, Random Acts of Elevator Music, iubar project and a retrospective DJ set by KOSHOWKO.

Experience iPad virtuosity, live coding, bit-crushed sonics and the bleeps of obsolete soundcards.

Bandwidth set list (Saturday July 4, 2009)

My set at Bandwidth:

0. Heiress / The Immortal / Intro
1. Lenticular Cup
2. Skirr
3. Believe Again Remix
4. AMay

Bandwidth was an extremely successful and entertaining event. In terms of watching bands, a turnaround time of 30 minutes with few gaps inbetween (each band sets up while the previous one plays), is very satisfying. The diversity and number of acts ensures a constantly changing dynamic and enough moods and styles to please almost anybody. There were also comfy chairs, there was room to move around in and the venue had tons of character. Huge props to the organisers. And smaller props to me for helping man the merchandise stand for decent sections of the night.

From performer perspective, I have to admit I found setting up around the previous band quite hard to do, and I got sat on by the front lady of Actual Russian Brides temporarily for my troubles. The venue was also quite cold, and the rubbish circulation in my hands meant my keyboard playing (in the actual piano-like sense) was pretty poor. Still, after an absolutely nerve-wracking few minutes of being bathed in alien light - in which I was almost unable to recognise my own equipment - and feeling cold and clumsy, and losing my way all around the keyboard, the performance kicked in and took off.

Aeriae gig (BANDWIDTH) @ Red Rattler Theatre, Sydney, July 4, 2009

There's a mix of styles in there from dj sets through laptoppery, controllerism and out and out playing of instruments.

Don't forget to buy HOLD R1 when you come!
